Loch Lomond

Scottish (late 1800’s)


            C        Am                      F           G

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes

                  C              Am                 F   G
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,

            F               Am                 Dm              F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
Where me and my true love were ever wont to be,

             C                   Am                Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo         -         mond.

CHORUS

        C                   Am                F                 G
Oh! You'll take the high road, and I'll take the low road,

       C             Am        F      G
And I'll be in Scotland before you,

        F               Am                Dm              F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
But me and my true love we'll never meet again,

             C                   Am                Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lo         -         mond.

 

            C               Am            F              G
'Twas then that we parted, in yon shady glen

             C               Am              F   G
On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond,

     F                  Am        Dm                      F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
Where in purple hue, the Highland hills we view

                C               Am            Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
And the moon coming out in the gloam      -        ing.

 

Chorus

         C               Am                F                G

The wee birdies sing, and the wildflowers spring

            C                  Am            F   G
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping,

                 F                    Am      Dm                  F(1/2)   G7(1/2)
But the broken heart will ken no second spring again,

               C               Am                    Dm(1/2)   G(1/2)    C(x2)
Tho' the woeful may cease frae their grieving.
